Skills needed: chain, double crochet, front post triple crochet, sl st join, magic circle

With WW yarn and H hook
magic ring, ch 3 (counts as 1st dc) 11 more dc in ring, join. pull tight (12 dc)
2. ch 3, fptr in dc before join(see note at bottom), dc in next dc, fptr in beg ch 3, (dc in next dc, fptr in dc in st before) rep around, join to beg ch 3 (12 dc and 12 fptr)
*note: to cover the tail, dc over it when making your dc stitches, but not when making the fptr.
3. ch 3, dc in same st, fptr around fptr from prev row's join. sk next fptr, (2 dc in next dc, fptr around prev fptr) rep around join (24 dc and 12 fptr)
4. ch 3 dc in same st, fptr around fptr dc in next dc. (sk next fptr, 2 dc in next dc, fptr around skipped fptr, dc in next dc) rep around, join (36 dc, 12 fptr)
5. ch 3, dc in next dc, (sk fptr, 2 dc in next dc, fptr around skipped fptr, dc in next 2 dc) rep around to lat 2 st.  sk fptr, 2 dc in next dc, fptr in skipped fptr, join. (48 dc, 12 fptr)
6.  ch 3, dc in same st. fptr around fptr in join from prev row. dc in next 3 dc. (sk fptr, 2 dc in next dc, fptr in skipped fptr, dc in next 3 dc) join (60 dc, 12 fptr)
7. ch 3, dc in next dc. (sk fptr, dc in next 2 dc. fptr around fptr just skipped. dc in next 3 dc) rep to last 4 stitches. sk fptr, dc in next 2 dc, fptr around skipped fptr, dc in next dc, join. (60 dc, 12 fptr)
8. ch 3, fptr around fptr to the right of join. (dc in next 3 dc, sk fptr, dc in next 2 dc. fptr around skipped fptr) rep to end, dc in last 4 st. join
9. ch 3, (sk fptr, dc in next 2 dc, fptr around fptr just skipped, dc in next 3) to last 5 stitches. sk fptr, dc in next 2 dc, fptr around fptr just skipped, dc in next 2 dc. join
10. ch 3, dc in next 2 dc. (sk fptr, dc in next 2 fptr around fptr just skipped. dc in next 3 dc) to last 3 st. skip fptr, dc in next 2 dc, fptr in skipped fptr, join
11. ch 3, dc in next. fptr around fptr from join. (dc in next 3, sk fptr, dc in next 2 dc, fptr around skipped fptr) to last 3 stitches. dc in last 3 st, join.
12.-15.  rep 7-10
16.-17 ch 1, sc in next 71, join.
18. ch 1, sc in next 19,  sl in next 2, turn
19. do not ch! (sc in next 5, 2 sc) 4 times, sc in next, sl in next 2, turn
20. (sc in next 5, 2 sc) 5 times, sc in next, sl in next 2, turn
21. (sc in next 5, 2 sc) 6 times, sc in next 2, sl in next 2
22. (sc in nex 4, 2 sc) 9 times, sc in next sl in next 2 turn
23. sc in next 56, sl in next 2, turn
24. sc in next 58, sl in next 2 fasten off
*note: putting the fptr before the dc just made is what causes the swirl pattern to appear.  You will always need to cross over dcs just made to make your fptr throughout the pattern
